Visible care for oily skin

ALPAFLOR® ALP®-SEBUM is our unique organic solution for oily skin. It is produced from the rare Alpine plant Epilobium fleischeri. Clinical studies have proven its outstanding properties for sebum production and pore size reduction - leading to a visibly improved skin appearance.


The plant

ALPAFLOR® ALP®-SEBUM is produced from Epilobium fleischeri, a rare Alpine species of Willowherb, whose outstanding soothing activity has been known to the Alpine population for centuries. This remarkable pioneer plant from the Onagraceae family rapidly colonizes rough or damaged ground with its beautiful flowers.

DSM selected Epilobium fleischeri over other Epilobium species because of its especially high quantity of both Oenothein B and flavonoids. These are the key compounds that show sebum-regulating and anti-inflammatory activities.
